Numix Solarized by bitterologist Numix Solarized by bitterologist
Now with more accent colors! I added a script that allows you to chose any of the eight Solarized accent colors as your selected background color, anything from the standard blue to magenta or yellow.

This is a remix of the popular Numix theme by satya164, using the Solarized color scheme created by Ethan Shoonover. 

The Gnome Shell theme is satya164's Elegance Colors theme – the presets are included as .ini files and can be installed by placing them in ~/.config/elegance-colors/presets/ (big thanks to satya164 for suggesting that solution, wouldn't have thought of that possibility myself), and then selected in the Elegance Colors settings application.

The suggested fonts for this theme are Adobe Source Sans and Adobe Source Code, which are available here: 
sourceforge.net/projects/sourc… sourceforge.net/adobe/sourceco… (they are also available through the repos of quite a few distributions, e.g. Fedora and Arch).

This is my first attempt at theming, meaning there are probably quite a few things I've messed up or missed. Please don't hesitate to report  any bugs or problems here. I hope to set up a Git repository in the future, but for now I'll just upload the theme and any updates here. Gnome Shell is what I'm running myself, so that's what is getting most of my attention – if there are bugs in other DEs, please let me know and I'll do my best to fix them.

CHANGELOG

2014-07-02
- Updated theme to comply with the latest version of Numix, lots of small changes. Most notably the tabs now look like they should, and the window background in Gnome Files will now no longer change color when all tabs but one are closed.
- Updated the preview image to reflect the changes (i.e. the new tabs).

2014-06-14
- The zip file should be up to date now, apparently DA didn't play nice with the last upload for some reason.

2014-06-06
- Simplified the accent colors script as per the suggestions of jensbob
- Set the tint value of the elegance colors themes to 0
- Increased the elegance colors themes font size to 10p
- Re-added the proper names to the elegance colors theme files (don't know when those got lost, but apparently it happened and now it's fixed)
- Updated the installation instructions

2014-05-06
- Fixed the accent color script, should now work properly with the gtk2 theme as well.
- Fixed the violet accent color.

2014-05-01
- Changed a typo in the accent color script, the red should now be the actual Solarized red instead of some weird hue of magenta.

2014-04-30
- Added a bash script for changing the selected background color variable.
- Tweaked the elegance colors settings.
- Updated the description.
- Updated the preview image.

2014-04-28
- Merged with the latest Numix theme, lots of small changes.
- The blue accent colour is back, mainly for consistency reasons. That gray was to much of an eyesore in some applications, e.g. Gnome Tweak Tool.
- Updated the preview image to reflect the new look.

2014-02-22
- Added a transparent Elegance Colors preset
- Fixed the xfwm4-theme (I hope)
- Updated the preview image
- Misc. fixes 

2014-01-04
- Changed the "osd_base" and "osd_foreground" colors of the light theme, thereby making Gnome Terminal light instead of dark.

2014-01-03
- Added a light version of the GTK theme
- Updated the preview image

2013-12-29
- Fixed some weird button coloring in the dark Elegance Colors preset
- Made the Elegance Colors presets more square to better fit the look of the GTK theme 
- Added "#Name" information to the .ini files to make them installable as Elegance Colors presets as per the suggestion of satya164
- Added a light Elegance Colors preset (initial release, will probably need some tweaking)
- Updated installation instructions

2013-12-24
- Fixed the typo in gtk.css resulting in a "gtk-warning **: theme parsing error missing semicolon at end of color definition" error message.
- Tweaked the Gnome Shell theme settings slightly
- Removed the shadow from the Gnome Shell theme
- Removed the separate Gnome Shell Themes, seeing  as Elegance Colors does not want to export themes at the moment (it is also easier to maintain just the .ini files). If anyone wants the old file, just post a comment and i'll provide a link.
- Updated the preview image

2013-12-06
- Tweaked the dark Gnome Shell theme, highlights now much more subtle

2013-12-05
- Fixed the dark theme window manager colors, should now match the light theme
- Tweaked the Gnome Shell themes

2013-12-04:2
- Added a dark Gnome Shell theme
- Added installation instructions
- Restructured the theme folder, Gnome Shell themes are now separate from the GTK theme
- Gnome Shell themes are now named Elegance Colors Solarized and Elegance Colors Solarized Dark

2013-12-04:1
- Added proper window manager colors
- Changed the preview picture to match the updated theme

2013-12-03:2
- Added the extracted Gnome Shell theme from Elegance Colors to the theme folder

2013-12-03:1
- Initial release

Beautiful theme but in Elementary OS Luna appears white labels on light background and it's difficult to see them.
Can you verify this little bug?

Thanks in advance :)

I don't run Elementary, so verifying it might not be the easiest thing for me. :-) But if I know more precisely what the bug is I might be able to fix it. Could you post a screenshot of the problem?

Ok. Here's a sample screenshot with white labels (not properly visible) on light background:

Thanx!

Hm, that's weird. It looks just fine in the bzr version of Pantheon Files that I'm able to install in Arch, which is my current dist. Then again, the bzr verison of Pantheon Files that I'm running does not have a properties dialog like that – yours looks more like the one in Gnome Files.


You're running Elementary Luna, right? If I'm not entirely mistaken that distro uses GTK 3.4 (?), which would make it incompatible with the original Numix theme and thereby all other themes derived from it. Satya164 provides an old version of Numix for GTK versions older than 3.6, but the older code is a real pain to work with compared to the current one when it comes to derivative themes like mine. However, I do have an old version of my theme lying around where the gtk-css looks fairly similar to the Numix one for older versions of GTK. Does this solve your problem? www.dropbox.com/s/o64v27xqm702…

Hi,
yes i'm on elementary os luna and yes it uses GTK 3.4.
Same white labels appears in several applications, e.g. Brasero.

Older version don't solve my problem :(

Thanx for support.

Well, there's not much to do then. Or, well, there is in principle – I could of course maintain two versions of the theme, but I don't even have the time to maintain one version properly at the moment...


I guess you'll just have to wait until they finally release that beta of Elementary Freya, shouldn't be that long (hopefully). :-)

Nice work! Unfortunately the updated shell script is missing in the latest version. I made my own edits and included the option for a custom color. The red color is still the magenta one, but it might be easier to maintain like this.

Cheers

#!/bin/bash
# Sets the selected_bg_color to one of the Solarized accent colors
read -p "Please chose an accent color. (yellow, orange, red, magenta, violet, blue, cyan, green or custom) : " color

if [ $color = yellow ]
then
               hexcolor=b58900
elif [ $color = orange ]
then
               hexcolor=cb4b16
elif [ $color = red ]
then
               hexcolor=dc32ff
elif [ $color = magenta ]
then
               hexcolor=d33682
elif [ $color = violet ]
then
               hexcolor=dc322f
elif [ $color = blue ]
then
               hexcolor=268bd2
elif [ $color = cyan ]
then
               hexcolor=2aa198
elif [ $color = green ]
then
hexcolor=859900
elif [ $color = custom ]
      then
               read -p "Please chose an hex code for the color (without the #): " hexcolor
fi

sed -i "s/selected_bg_color #.*;/selected_bg_color #$hexcolor;/g" gtk-3.0/gtk.css
sed -i "s/selected_bg_color #.*;/selected_bg_color #$hexcolor;/g" gtk-3.0/gtk-dark.css
sed -i  "s/selected_bg_color:#.*\\\ntex/selected_bg_color:#$hexcolor\\\ntex/g" gtk-2.0/gtkrc

echo "Accent color set to $color (#$hexcolor)"

Hm, it's right there as far as I can see, one .sh file in each of the theme folders (e.g. "/Numix Solarized Light/accent_colors.sh"). On the other hand, I should probably be more clear about the location of the script in the ReadMe file...

But yes, that code is certainly superior to the one I managed to cobble together. I knew right from the start that it was kind of moronic to provide the same sed instructions once for each color, but I didn't have a proper idea of how to implement something more elegant. Now I do though – thanks for the suggestion! I'll get right to it.
